The Alabama Arts Radio Series has their interview with Kathryn Tucker Windham online now, and it is *so great* – the topic is cemeteries and they talk about everything from customs to dinner on the grounds to the Lady Bankshire rose.
She talks for a long while about Live Oak in Selma. And she talks about the mask monuments at Mount Nebo!! I had no idea that what happened to the arms on the monument for Isaac Nettles’ mother was that deer had come along and rubbed them down to nothing.
I just got KTW’s new book – Spit, Scarey Ann, and Sweat Bees: One Thing Leads to Another – about her childhood. That little book is just full of wonderful stories. Another new radio interview with her is here.
